Is it a niche product? Absolutely. Is picture-in-picture on a smartphone one of the most extravagant, preposterous features in the mobile-technology world? You bet. Is it poised to become the next must-have feature? No chance. But Samsung's Pop Up Play is absolutely one of the most awesome features of the Galaxy S III.
Before I picked up the HTC One X and the Samsung Galaxy S III, I was a firm believer in the power of stock Android, and the folly of skins. After some time with HTC Sense and TouchWiz, though, I'm starting to waver.
June 21 is the day to circle in your calendar if you are an Android, Samsung, Galaxy S III and Sprint fan. The Now Network just let everyone know that the most anticipated Android phone of the year will land on its line-up on June 21.
If you are in the U.S. and can't/don't want to wait until the American carriers bring whatever variant of the phone they will (and you don't fancy importing one either) you can now pre-oder it from Amazon.
It appears that around nine million units of the Galaxy S II refresh have been pre-ordered from more than 100 global carriers (not to be confused with customer pre-orders), according to a recent Korea Economic Daily report.
